Delhi Police paper leak case solved, 28 nabbed

Written By kom nampultig on Selasa, 30 September 2014 | 22.10

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police paper leak case has been finally cracked as the sleuths of the crime branch finally managed to reach to the "source" of the leak.

While TOI was the first to report every development in the case, the Tuesday's breakthrough is also being exclusively reported by TOI.

While officials remained tightlipped about details of arrests in the wake of a press conference scheduled on Monday noon, sources told TOI that making the 27th and 28th — the final arrests in the case, the crime team has finally arrested one Amar from Jaunpur and Gorakhnath from Bihar who had originally leaked the paper from the printing press the owners of which have already been arrested.

The police have termed the rackets as a "large network of inter-state crooks" with contacts in several departments under the home ministry, central and state governments and have been leaking papers of different exams. They are also operating in close association with the masterminds of the Vyampam scam.

"We have managed to break every link in the chain and a team led by additional commissioner Ashok Chand and comprising DCP Bhisham Singh and ACP KPS Malhotra has busted the entire module after extensive investigations of over four months," joint commissioner of police Ravindra Yadav told TOI without elaborating on the details.

In total, 28 people including the chief controller of North Central Railway, Agra zone, a suspended railway engineer and a human rights activist apart from several others have been arrested so far. TOI had exclusively reported these breakthroughs.

The chief controller, Dinesh Kapil, had allegedly leaked the 2011 LIC paper also. Rajiv, the suspended engineer, used to impersonate candidates in the exam hall. He was suspended after his sister's fiance told police that he (Rajiv) had written his exam. The rights activist, Sube Singh Bhukkal, ran an NGO named International Human Rights Security Association and allegedly gathered candidates for the syndicate.

Top IAS officer trumps rival to be re-elected Gymkhana boss

NEW DELHI : Road transport secretary Vijay Chhibber was re-elected as the president of elite Gymkhana Club on Sunday for the second consecutive year defeating his rival Mohan Das Menon, a former IPS officer, by 527 votes.

The results were declared late Sunday night. Though the club has a convention of the president once elected is re-elected "unopposed" for the second year, this time polling happened as Menon joined the fray.

Both Chhibber and Menon are alumni of St Stephen's College.

"The members have responded in a mature manner to uphold the tradition and convention of our club. Our's is a conservative club and each member values and cherishes the articles that are the guiding principles which govern the club management. Conventions were sought to be broken and majority of members have given a befitting a reply with their overwhelming support," Chhibber said.

Just like last year, the "gentlemen's club" saw smear campaigns and a "lot of misinformation" was spread. This is perhaps for the first time a social media (youtube) was used for campaign.

Some of the members TOI spoke to said that they hope future elections in the club won't be fought "ugly".

Delhi Police official shifted for misbehaving with sportsman

NEW DELHI: An official of Delhi Police has been shifted to police lines for allegedly misbehaving with a disabled sportsman who was on his way to South Korea to attend an international meet.

The incident took place last week when Pradeep Raj, an international athlete with disability, approached an immigration counter of Delhi's IGI airport meant for disabled people.

Upon checking his medical certificate, the immigration official, a sub-inspector with Delhi Police, was not satisfied with it and wanted to know what his specific disability was and allegedly humiliated him.

Raj, a recipient of a national youth award from President Pranab Mukherjee and general secretary of the Association for Disabled People, is handicapped.

The para-Olympic table tennis player has alleged that the police official humiliated him and did not honour his medical certificate.

Upon his return from South Korea, Raj complained to Union Home Ministry who initiated an enquiry.

Pending the completion of the enquiry, the sub-inspector of Delhi Police, who was on deputation to the Immigration department, has been sent to police lines and disciplinary action was being contemplated against him, a senior official said.

DUSU president Mohit Nagar said that the union would initiate a series of discussions with the university administration on the issue, urging it not to let the stadium and other facilities go waste.

"After we fought for scrapping of the four-year-undergraduate programme (FYUP) , we are now ready for another battle. The sports facilities belong to the students and they must be allowed to use the same. The university collects sports fee from each student, so it cannot deny them access to these facilities," said Nagar.

Nagar said that the DUSU would submit a memorandum to the authorities, including vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh and the chairman of Delhi University sports council.

"If the university does not accepts our demand, we will stage demonstrations and go on an strike."

ASI to begin revamp of Diwan-i-Khas

NEW DELHI: The Archaeological Survey of India will from Monday start conservation work on the 17th century Diwan-i-Khas monument inside the Red Fort after a portion of the roof of the Mughal-period hall "sagged". Allaying apprehensions, the ASI Delhi Circle, however, said there was nothing "alarming" and it was a "routine" conservation exercise.

"The Diwan-i-Khas has been standing for over three centuries and the roof was built in a multi-layered fashion with wood layering at the bottom. And, over time, the wood has aged and must have given way or rotten, because of which the portion of the roof had sagged," Superintending Archaeologist of ASI Delhi Circle, Vasant Swarankar said.

"We are starting the conservation work from Monday. I have already issued orders for it," he said. Rejecting a media report about the "dangerous condition" of the hall, Swarankar said, "There is nothing to worry about unlike what the report claims."

The Diwan-i-Khas with openings of engrailed arches on its sides consists of a rectangular central chamber surrounded by aisles of arches rising from piers and is one of the central points of attraction in the complex of the World Heritage site. pti

According to ASI Delhi, the entry to the hall was restricted to the public in the beginning of the current year only, after "we had found visitors vandalising the artwork".

"The sagging was reported a couple of years ago only but the due process of conservation takes time as a lot of preparation has to precede the actual conservation work," Swarankar said.

"So, the moment we identified the reason for the sagging, we realised we had to replace the wood. So, we sent the wood sample from the Hall to Forest Research Institute (FRI) in Dehradun to find its make. Meanwhile, we worked on its old drawings and collected documentations to lay out a road map for the conservation. It takes time," he said.

The famed hall, a testimony to the iconic Mughal architecture, once had the legendary Peacock Throne and silver work on its ceiling.

"Over the marble pedestal in its centre stood the famous Peacock Throne which was taken away by dictator Nadir Shah in 1739. The ceiling had silver work which were also destroyed by him. The British later replaced it with wooden ceiling with a copper layering and redid the floral designs," he added.

Builder told to pay Rs 20 lakh

NEW DELHI: A consumer forum has directed a Delhi-based construction firm to pay around Rs 20 lakh to a man for not delivering him a plot, saying the company engaged in "unfair trade practice".

The New Delhi District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, presided by C K Chaturvedi, asked Taneja Developers and Infrastructure Ltd to pay Rs 19.5 lakh to Nirmal Singh and held that the evidence filed by the firm was false and fabricated.

"... It appears that the opposite party (firm) acted as collection agent to collect the money from various consumers without any approval or construction activities or development at site which act clearly falls under... unfair trade practice, which deliberately pretended to sell plot through provisional allotment printed performas and misled the consumer as well as forum too," the forum's bench, also comprising its members S R Chaudhary and Ritu Garodia, said.

The forum also said it was very much transparent from the activities of the firm and its officials that they adopted the delaying tactics for not delivering the plot to Singh, despite several requests and correspondence exchanged between them, but all efforts were in vain.

"OP is directed to refund Rs 17 lakh... and we also award Rs two lakh as compensation for harassment and Rs 50,000 as litigation charges," it said.

Singh had told the forum that he had booked a commercial space at Mohali in Punjab in provisional allotment with the firm in 2008 and had paid Rs 17 lakh for 204 sq. yd. and was supposed to get the possession within 12 months.

The company did not develop the proposed site and on April 6, 2010, Singh received a letter regarding allotment of a plot, whose size was reduced from the size promised in the application.

Further, the firm also raised a financial demand for allotment of the plot. Aggrieved by this, Singh filed the complaint before the forum.

The firm, however, had denied the allegation made against it.

30% rise in dengue cases in Delhi in a week

NEW DELHI: The total number of dengue cases in the national capital this year has reached near 100, with an increase of 30 per cent in the last week alone.

A total of 98 cases had been reported in Delhi till September 27, while the figure stood at 75 till September 20, according to a report released by South Delhi Municipal Corporation.

While figures for various corporations in Delhi are — 18 (north corporation), 39 (south corporation) and 13 (east corporation), 15 cases were reported from regions in Delhi outside the jurisdiction of the three municipal corporations and 13 from neighbouring states, the report said.

Over 5,500 dengue cases and six deaths were registered in the national capital last year, according to SDMC, which compiles report for vector-borne diseases in the city.

According to a recent report released by North Delhi Municipal Corporation, dengue mosquitoes have been found breeding at various institutions this year, including six cases reported at Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Hospital and three at the headquarters of North Delhi Municipal Corporation itself.

DDA, Delhi Technical University and DTC depot are among several institutions in the national capital to be penalized for failing to check breeding of dengue mosquitoes on their premises.

Delhi had witnessed a large number of dengue cases in 2010, with over 6,200 cases. In 2009, 1,153 cases were registered, over 1,300 cases in 2008, 1,131 cases in 2011 and 2,093 cases in 2012.

The decline in the number of cases this year has been attributed to delayed rain and preventive drive undertaken by the civic bodies much before the onset of monsoon.

Civic bodies are continuing with preventive measures like fumigation, checking of breeding areas and awareness campaigns to control dengue menace.

According to the report, 1,33,728 households were found positive for mosquito breeding, while legal notices were served to over 97,340 for mosquitogenic conditions.

Over 10,152 prosecutions were also launched during the same period.

Meanwhile, 53 cases of malaria have also been recorded in the city till September 27, with 22 of them being reported in September alone, according to the report.
